9 Distinctions of Ha’Mashayachim (The Anointed)

‘Ha’ is “Hebrew” for The.

Mashayach is “Hebrew” for Anointed.

Collectively, in Latin, it translates as The Christ. In Hebrew, He’Messiah. Popularly amongst modern Hebrews, Ha’Mashayach.

The Anointed is a surname if you will. The New Name written in White Stone for the chosen children of HAYAH inducted again through the blood who cross over, or overcome.

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

–  Revelations 2:17

What does that really mean though? If we are now His children again? In His house/Kingdom once more? Covered in the adoption of The Blood?

What must we do differently that we did not do before, that caused Him to hide His face from our shame?

It’s simple. Accept HaMashayach. Be HaMashayach.

Anointed – verb. Mashach (mah-shah-kh) to paint with oil, to consecrate, to make holy.

Entry from Gesenius’ Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon: 

[…]to anoint any one as a sacred rite in his inauguration and consecration to an office, a priest, a prophet, or a king.

But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;

1 Peter 2:9

So as a peculiar people, we specifically have been called a royal priesthood. A priest is “One who stands up in any one’s matter, and labors in his cause”. A middle-man, mediator, intercessor. And not just in a “religious” context, but in a lawful way.

Only Levites were anointed as the priest tribe, hence the title “Leviticle Priesthood”. They once acted as lawyers for Israel in pleading our cause to The Judge, YHWH. But failed, because we are all unclean.

This is why Yahusha is called The High Priest. He is the ultimate case-pleader, lawyer, anointer, savior, mediator, and intercessor.

So in our royal priesthood, we are called to pick up our cross and follow Him, to adorn ourselves in His garments, to live a life like unto His.

If you’re wondering what this looks like, The Scripture does a seemlessly perfect job of outlining it, from Genesis, to Revelations. He comes in the WHOLE book as it is written of Him.

As I began studying HaMashayach’s embodiment, Ruach revealed to me some core truths. I think if you take up or have already taken up a close study of His ethics, you’ll have similar findings.

Here are the nine most prominent characteristics of The Anointed Yahusha and our priesthood in His Blood.

1. He is Compassionate

Taking the time to heal his people (when it was illegal to even TOUCH those who were considered unclean), wash feet, fellowship with the poor, feed the hungry, hear the concerns of others. Our King is the ESSENCE of The People’s Prince. He was thoroughly invested in His People, and prioritized showing love over riches, fame, earthly power, and other worldly gains.

But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.

Matthew 9:36

2. He is a Prayer Warrior

He denounces devils, casts demons from people, spake over them with words of powerful blessing, and shared the love of Hayah with others through consolation and wisdom. He didn’t just tell people over and over “I’ll pray for you”. No, He actually spoke over them right then, interceded for them, fasted for them, sacrificed His time, energy, and resources for those who said, and those who didn’t say they needed prayer.

Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them.
But Yahusha said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.

Matthew 9:13-15


Yahusha fed the hungry, visited prisoners, and served where he could. He knew the implications of His calling, and still drank of His Cup. He understood that He was here to serve instead of be served. This is what I love most about Him, because without His dedication to serving the un-deserving in the Name of Hayah, I wouldn’t have a savior. It often makes me think of how my little decisions to serve may aid someone in a way that otherwise wouldn’t be done.

For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many

Mark 10:45

4. He is Forgiving

He is the epitome of forgiveness. Even as He was crucified, He prayed for Hayah to forgive His persecutors. A part of being a graceful intercessor as a royal priesthood, is having and sharing forgiveness. HaMashayach exemplifies perfectly why we need to alleviate one another. He’s the only one who has never trespassed against the Law. By this truth, we KNOW we need forgiveness, not just for ourselves, but extending it towards each other, also.

Then said Yahusha, ‘Abba, forgive them; for they know not what they do.’ And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Luke 23:34

5. He Knows How to Rest

He was caught resting in the midst of frightening storms. Rest is a commandment, and not just a tiny recommendation. We are commanded to keep the Sabbath holy unto YHWH. Yahusha not only rested from his outer work as a minister, healer, and volunteer, but His inner turmoil as well. He had rest in His soul. It was evident in His actions and speech. He knew He was going to be the scapegoat and sacrifice from The Beginning, and yet He lived life day by day with intention, peace, and zero anxiety about His purpose because He knew Abba YHWH.

And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.

 Mark 2:27-28

6. He Was Submitted

Yahusha knew His Master, purpose, path, destiny, boundaries, and jurisdiction. He insisted on The Father’s will. He insisted that there is none good but Hayah. He made known that He seeks to first please Hayah in everything, even when it cost Him His life.

This is especially important for literally anyone who wants to accomplish literally anything. Counsel, advise, provision and protection are only a few of the perks of being covered through submission. Order and friendship (friend means: common interests/goals) is essential to serving The Most High because no man is an island and on one accord are things accomplished. He didn’t resist or groan about The Job that Abba gave Him. He accepted His cup and rejoiced in YHWH.

And He said unto him, ‘Why callest thou me good? there is none good but One, that is, Hayah: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.’

Matthew 19:17

7. He Loves to Worship

Yahusha, again, glorified not Himself, but The Father. Every chance He got, He let it be known that Yahuah is The All Powerful One. He often went alone into woods and mountains to worship and pray, and worshipped not only in words, but in action by almsgiving, charity, and correcting sinners. He gave His life to The Will of YAHUAH, which in and of itself is Worship

If you need any further clarification on fervent worship, I talk about it in my post on 5 Spiritual Disciplines That Will Enhance Your Walk.

After this he went down to Capernaum, he, and his mother, and his brethren, and his disciples: and they continued there not many days.
And the Jews’ passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:
And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables;
And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.
And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.
Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things?
Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
But he spake of the temple of his body.
When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

8. He Has Self Control

Or discipline, simply put. When He was tempted of the adversary during His time in the wilderness, Yahusha not only showed His knowledge of The Scripture, but the wisdom He exercised by APPLYING what The Scripture said.

And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Yahusha said unto him, ‘It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt Elohai’Ka (Yahuah thy Eloah).’

He didn’t just bury The Word in His mind and intellect, but in His heart also, to govern all of His issues, desires, temperaments, and goings. Yahuah gave us a great example of how to combat temptation: USE THE WORD! It is sharper than any two edged sword. Leaning on The Truth of The Word leaves no wiggle room for the lies of the enemy to creep into our lives.

9. He is Diligent

This is shown in the Entire Volume Written of Him. From Genesis to Revelations.

Therefore Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, before that Abraham was made, I am.

The Messiah is consistent, benevolent, honest, faithful, disciplined, prudent, patient, kind, and diligent. As a carpenter who’s task is to rebuild The Temple of Yahuah, one can expect no less than a diligent worker who puts His best on the table until IT IS FINISHED.

Embodying The Messiah is exhibiting faith in every facet of our walks. Being a Royal Priesthood is walking in this ordinance not just for our sakes. But for the sake of His Kingdom, His Chosen People, His Name, and His Glory. To be carpenters like HaMashayach, building up The City on a Mountain That Cannot Be Hid.

Love is the fulfillment of The Law. Yahusha says He came not to abolish, but to fulfill. In like manner, The Royal Priesthood is to fulfill The Law with love. Love is walking in the way of Yahuah even if it means suffering in this realm. Disregarding that He promises us a seat in His Realm. Yet considering that our suffering means someone else’s seat, too.

Learning about HaMashayach has been a lifelong journey that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed, and I enjoy even more the opportunity to share it with you. May the truth of who you are and what a royal priesthood means be ever in your heart, and may you have the peace of HaMashayach in light of the road ahead.
